Once again, this year entry to Melbourne Park during Australian Open qualifying days is free.
This is a fantastic freebie in the AO tennis program every year, but judging by past turnouts not everyone knows about this great free experience that awaits anyone who has the time.
The men’s and women’s singles qualifying takes place on the outside courts and runs over four days from Tuesday 14 January to Friday 17 January with free entry for the public.
Locate the best entrance gate for you, go through security and roam among the outside courts until you find a match that interests you, sit down and enjoy.
No booking or ticketing applies during the qualifying pre-tournament period.
Gates open at 9:30am and play starts at 10am. Evening visitors should check on the AO website for live updates to see if matches are still in progress. There is usually still some play happening until around 7 to 9pm at night.
